Yes, i would have thought a series of tags for the whole video clip, but specifying timeline segment might have cut it. Its like IA has built up 98% of all the infrastructure needed, but its not quite there for finding particular needed shots.

For example, if the current IA was extended, it could be ANY user submitting timeline tags to a video. As every new timeline segment is identified with a tag, an additional GIF is rendered. Instead of freeform identification of a video's contents you could have an image and markup of every shot.

Its probably possible to build such a think independently of IA, like an IAIndexing.Com or something, but the ability to generate GIFs would probably have to be nixed.

Hopefully I'll have time to take a stab at it, or assist someone else who's trying. The BBC audio link looks like a good example.

Thanks for the info.

o.k., i think this could be it:

http://trac.filmapart.org/trac.cgi/FilmApart

"FilmApart will have two primary functions in it's initial version, timecode based annotation (subclip creation) of any media available for download and building playlists/sequences of subclips."
